    Looks great! I like the simple artwork and the woodgrain area around the flippers. It definitely fits the theme. Can't wait to see it in action.

    Great work! Big fan of the cabinet artwork and coin door inserts. Very tastefully done and reminiscent of the old spray on work of the 50s/60s/70s.

    #58 65 days ago

    That’s really cool. Love the detail. Love the apron.

    #59 65 days ago

    Awesome job!

    This is a gorgeous homebrew and looks like a fun pin to shoot, love the choice to put a pop bumper down low on the playfield. Great work on the art direction, layout, everything. I was considering doing something similar at one point (EM-style homebrew on a Proc or something similar) but was overwhelmed with where to even start. Did you use mostly original hardware from an EM or all new components (like the bumpers and everything)? And how'd the you handle the score reels, what kind of stepper motors?

    #61 65 days ago

    I can't wait to see the final product! My two daughters are Potterheads and they love the concept.

    I did have a donor pin that was really rough. I used a few of parts from it including the cabinet. Most of the above playfield parts are new.
    I used the original score reels from the donor pin, no steppers. All of the guts are Proc and new stuff. I made my own lights as I only needed one color- (most of the stuff you can buy for lights are RBG type.)
    The main goal is to make it appear to be a EM...

    Thanks for all the compliments, greatly appreciated.

    Are you going to be able to bring this thing to TPF? I saw in an earlier post that you didn't think you were going to make it... but it looks like things might be coming along? Would love to see this thing in person.

    #64 65 days ago

    I don’t think I can make it to Texas this year.... I have some work crap that I have to wait on...

    That’s very nice. Classic.

    This turned out phenomenal, and I love how you stuck to the actual scoring of Quidditch (but in a way that makes sense for a balanced game of pinball). This might be one of the most well polished homebrews I've seen, really making me want to do something of my own in the future. I think I might need a Silmarillion EM-style machine to put next to Hobbit + LOTR...

    Great work on this.
